This is Our Rights Song

In our Year 6 music classes, we cover many different ways of writing, listening and playing music, including songwriting! We decided to write a song based on the rights we have as children and adults in our community.

First, we looked at our Rights Respecting rules that we have in Osmani, we chose the rights that we felt were most important to us and made these into poem or ‘lyrics’ as we call them in songwriting.

We then created our backing track using both electronic and live instruments. We learned Pachelbel’s Canon in D on a range of instruments including piano, recorder and xylophone. Then, we produced the track by recording it and mixing in Logic Pro before finally adding our voices on top to complete the track. We are super proud of the track we made and hope it will highlight how important our rights really are.

Plastic School Packed Lunch Cases Letter to the Council

During one of our meetings, the ambassadors discussed the use of plastic within our school packed lunches. The sandwiches are cased in single-use plastic and we wanted to use our voice to see if we could make a change. We emailed the local council to ask for suggestions for alternative materials that could be used for our lunch. We are still awaiting a response and will keep you updated when we hear from them.

Have a read of our letter.

Children In Need

On Friday 16th November, Osmani Primary School celebrated Children in Need by wearing pyjamas. Children in Need is a great charity to get involved in, as it helps children across the country who do not have access to their rights. We wore cosy pyjamas to school and raised lots of money.

Thank you everyone for your generous donations. Our school managed to raise £231.72!
